A Scottish comic book corporation has been bought by streaming giant Netflix.

Millarworld, founded by Mark Millar from Coatbridge, includes his portfolio of reputations and narratives such as Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Old Man Logan.

Mr Millar said he was still “blinking” over the news.

He said it was only the third time a comic book buy on this proportion had ever happened, with Warner Bros buying DC Comics in 1968, and Disney buying Marvel in 2009.

Mr Millar, who lives in Glasgow, started Millarworld as a creator-owned comic-book fellowship nearly 15 years ago.
